I am having problems seeing things in the distance, such as reading the text on a TV some times I find it really hard, what causes this? I can see close things perfectly its just things in the distance I am really finding hard to read. For example a video clock 1.5 metres away would look blured to me.

Ah well, to be honest I am not at all surprised I have been pushing my luck with spending 10 hours a day in front of a monitor for 5 years

I guess glasses will just make me look more geeky I used to need glasses as a kid but the last time I went he said my eye sight had improved, it always used to be close up stuff though.

At least my hips are still working

You're short sighted my friend, probablary from too much reading and watching the idiot box. Also using computer of course.

You need to get yourself some glasses am afraid. particulary for lectures i should imagine.

Unlikely - generally most people's eyesight stabilises once they're past puberty. Unless you have some hereditary condition or something I doubt you'll actually go blind

I'm afraid your short-sighted, like me... it's off to the opticians for you! The sooner, the better....I refused to admit I needed glasses, but the world literally becomes a clearer place once you get them! (obviously )

lol, amusing to read the account of a myopic guy treating it like some sort of serious medical problem.

It is caused by the eye being slightly too long. In hypermetropia, long-sightedness, it's slightly too short. This means that either way some images just don't quite focus properly on the retina!

I'm -3.75 in each eye, it's stabilised now. Just about classed as "mild" short-sightedness.

I've had to get my glasses today and I have problems with long vision. Just go and get an eye test they only take about an hour including chosing glasses etc.

def sounds like short sightedness. my optician says it will probably stop deteriorating when im finished in education because focusing a lot on small print and computer screens causes it to get worse

yeah you are suffering from short sightedness, your eyes are too large, this causes the image to become blurred at further distances away, it sounds as if you are going to need some fairly strong glasses, but check with your optician they will be able to help you and perscrobe glasses, or if not go with contact lenses... boots do some good deals on contact lenses and you can get them on a discount thing if you sign up with their boots vision plan

Yes short sighted.

All I want to say is take care of your eyes!

I was always been classed as visually impaired and told to look after my eye (I only have one) but I didn't and when I was 18 I went to have my eyes tested and they found a cataract and refered me to the eye hospital.

The cataract caused complications which damaged my retina past repair because of another condition I have which means they can't operate. They told me at a check up I was going to lose my sight I didn't believe them but it happened.

This is an extream example and probably will never happen to anybody reading this but I just wanted to show you how important it is to look after your eyes

Hiya,
I dont want to completely hijack this thread. But I do have a question about my eye sight. None of my parents wear glasses apart from reading. There are no known hereditory conditions in my family. However, I have noticed for some months that my right eye is ever so slightly blurry, especially when looking into the distance. However, my left eye is perfectly fine. I just have two questions:

1) Is this a major problem? Will this situation correct itself over time, ie. my stronger eye will compensate?
2) In almost ever photo I have taken of me, I have 'red eye' in it. Is that any problem with the eye? Its just it happens every photo, is that a problem?

Thanks, and I hope someone can answer my questions.
